Kia Joorabchian wants to take Joshua Zirkzee to Arsenal

Joshua Zirkzee might join Arsenal in the summer transfer window, with Kia Joorabchian reportedly preferring the Emirates as his next destination.

According to a report by Corriere dello Sport, Joshua Zirkzee is the subject of interest from Arsenal. The Gunners are keen on signing a striker in the summer transfer window. And Kia Joorabchian, the Bologna striker’s agent, has boosted the North London club’s prospects, as he favours a move to the Emirates for the 22-year-old.

Joshua Zirkzee: Finding his feet in Serie A

Joshua Zirkzee has established himself as one of the best young players in Serie A this season. The Dutchman took some time to get going, with his spell with Bayern Munich not working out. However, moving to Italy has resurrected his stuttering career in the last few years.

The 22-year-old has been productive this season, even though he has not scored bagfuls of strikes. Zirkzee has contributed to 19 goals in 37 appearances across all competitions, finding the back of the net 12 times while providing seven assists. Meanwhile, the youngster’s progress has not gone unnoticed, capturing the attention of several high-profile clubs.

Serie A bigwigs want to keep him in Italy beyond the summer transfer window. However, a move to the Premier League might be on the cards for the Dutch striker, with Arsenal vying for his signature heading into the summer transfer window. Meanwhile, Bologna will only be able to recoup around €21 million from his sale.

London calling?

Arsenal’s interest in Joshua Zirkzee is understandable. The Gunners are keen on signing a productive striker in the summer transfer window, with Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah failing to make their mark thus far this season. Kai Havertz has been the only reliable striker for Arsenal in the 2023/24 campaign.

So, it makes sense that Arsenal will delve into the market for a striker in the summer transfer window. Zirkzee has thus emerged as a viable target, with reports suggesting the Gunners lead the race to sign him. Kia Joorabchian has now boosted Arsenal’s hopes, as the Emirates is his preferred destination for his client.

It will be interesting to see if other clubs can turn Zirkzee’s head and compel him to overrule Kia Joorabchian. However, the super-agent’s healthy relations with Edu Gaspar might give Arsenal the upper-hand in negotiations.
